EXPLANATIONS 

1. The fact that a birth, marriage, or death is recorded in 
Shirley does not prove that it occurred in this town ; but when 
places other than Shirley and Massachusetts are named in the 
original records, they are given in the printed copy. 

2. In all items from town records the original spelling is 
followed, and no attempt is made to correct errors appearing in 
the records. 

3. The various spellings of a name should be examined, as 
items about the same family or individual may be found under 
different spellings. 

4. A baptism is not printed, if it occurs within one year after 
the recorded date of birth of a child of the same name and parents 
or if it is clear that the child baptized is identical with the child 
of the birth record ; but variations found in the baptismal record 
are added to the birth record. 

5. The birth of a married woman is recorded under her maiden 
name, if it is known. But if the maiden name cannot be deter- 
mined, the entry appears under the husband's name, with a dash 

enclosed in brackets, i.e., [ ], to signify that the maiden 

name is unknown. If it is not known whether the surname is 
that of a married or unmarried woman, ? m. is placed in brackets 
after the Christian name. 

6. Marriages and intentions of marriage are printed under 
the names of both parties. When both the marriage and in- 
tention of marriage are recorded, only the marriage record is 
printed ; and where a marriage appears without the intention 
being recorded, it is designated with an asterisk. 



EXPLANATIONS 5 

7. Additional information which does not appear in the 
original text of an item, i.e., any explanation, query, inference, 
or difference shown in other entries of the record, is bracketed. 
Parentheses are used to show variations in the spelling of a 
name in the same entry, to indicate the maiden name of a wife, 
to enclose an imperfect portion of the original text, and to sep- 
arate clauses in the original text.
